Two drive throug windows. As expected food experienced. They have better chicken nuggets than a lot of places and the Cajun fries and onion rings are great.

I liked this restaurant. We don't have Cook Outs where we live so we've been curious and finally stopped tonight. The menu was larger than expected - more than burgers - and the service was fast and friendly despite the long line when we pulled up. There are also about 40 different shake flavors to choose from, some very unique, that I want to try on our next visit. Note - do not assume that they will put everything on your burger. Ask for the toppings you want.

It's amazing what you (and others) will do when you have a craving for something that's not so good for you.... especially french fries. The line was wrapped around the building but the wait was on! You can't and shouldn't eat it everyday but it's nice to enjoy a little fried food on occasion.

A good place to grab a quick bite if you are in the mood for typical American fare. This includes things like shakes, burgers, hot dogs, and several other types of sandwiches. They have many different types of flavored milkshakes and good fries and onion rings as well. Give them a try for a great hamburger made how you like it.

Great food for the prices. Milkshakes are awesome! The service at this location was the quickest I've ever had at a Cook Out!

We got the wrong order. Spicy grilled chicken sandwich was not cooked evenly, part juicy other part dry & seasoning just sparkled on it. Chicken tenders were over cooked dry & hard. Onion rings & nuggets were great. Nut Meg shake was good & thick.

We were there on a late night food run and though it was close to closing we still got our food hot and in a timely manner. Attitudes were definitely low but just the level of tired I would expect someone to have taking fast food orders at 4am.

Cookout is usually a great place to eat. They get your order right at least 95% of the time. The food is great. I would suggest the cheeseburger or chicken sandwich tray. For the sides I would definitely recommend the chicken cascade. The other sides are fries ,onion rings, and lots of good stuff. They’re service has always been excellent and that’s all that matters to me. Definitely a great place to go.

Drive through is always long, but, they are quick getting you in and out. Never had an order messed up... one of the BEST SHAKES you can get. Friendly staff!

I just moved to Durham with my fiancé and this is the closest Cookout location to us. We randomly get milkshake cravings, but have been disappointed with the milkshakes at this location every time we've gotten one. Every time they have very little flavor and aren't fully blended. One night they were super icy/frozen. The only saving grace for this location is the food. The food is always great.

This particular location like all the cookout locations are extremely busy long lines. but the employees at cookout are fast quick and very professional. The employees are accurate and funny every time I place an order. Locations at Hwy 70, Roxboro Rd and Western Blvd in Raleigh are my favorite locations. If you haven't been to Late Night Cookout your missing out. After being in LA for 15 years this is a gem of a business. Well done owners on your concept and employees on delivering 100% effectiveness.

Nostalgic must have if you've ever lived in or frequented the area. Good eats and easy on the purse. I always get the seasoned fries...delicious!

Let's be honest....the milkshakes are one of the main draws to Cook Out. Another being their very reasonable prices. The food is good. Some food maybe really good or just okay depending on individual tastes but as for me...I've been a customer since they opened and I'll be their customer as long as they're in business.

The staff were nice and our food came quickly. There are many food options and combinations to choose from. Ranging from burgers to wraps. They also have an assortment of milkshake flavors.

Food is great, but you have to take out or eat in your car. Get the Cookout tray with 2 sides. Milkshakes are awesome.

Very very good. Great even! And the prices would fit a college student that has to work for tuition.

Best Cookout in the Triangle hands down! Fast and and friendly workers. We choose to drive from our home in NW Raleigh all the way to this one. When the pandemic started we still chose to eat here, always witnessing proper precautions. Day or night their food and sweet tea are consistently great!

Love their food but on this visit the order taking was hard to hear and they were in too much of a hurry.

Less crowded than other cook-outs I've been to (only one window). And the best onion rings out of all the cook-outs.

This place has good quality food and a reasonable price. I was able to get a good amount of quality food for just $5 in the middle of the night.

One of the top NC fast food options in my opinion! - try the cookout tray with barbecue sandwich, hush puppies, cajun fries, and chocolate chip milkshake!

This cookout had a line out the parking lot but they got through the cars quickly. Our food came out hot and fresh quickly, the order was accurate and the attendant have us service with a smile. At some other cookouts the food is cooked with too much char on the grilled items, this location cooked their food without that extra residue. The fries were crispy, the wrap I ordered was made well and with a large piece of chicken. One of the better cookout locations I have been to.

The prices have increased, which is understandable that has to happen sometimes. Food has become mediocre though. Chicken Quesadilla sauce was missing and the chicken was very minimum. The peach cobbler milkshake did NOT have the cobbler part instead a few vanilla wafers were thrown in there. They did provide straws, spoons, and napkins. Hopefully they step it up a little to match the increase prices.

It was a rainy night, and they were busy, but they messed up all of our orders. They did fix a little of it, but we noticed the mess ups when we got home. Not the best Cook Out. The food did taste good though.

Umm. Cookout is always tops on my to-do list when I get back home to NC! This particular location I would give a 5... Based on the food and the staff...but I have to down rate it based on its awkward location! At least at night and in an unfamiliar area I found it difficult to get in...and out! Also the traffic right around this place is just nuts... Again difficult getting in and out! It's far too close... But also somehow not far enough away from... The nearest stoplight!

Staff can be what some would consider rude. But they're just trying to get the orders out. My food is always been hot and made to order.

Great food. Excellent shakes. The only thing negative is that they need to bring their speakers closer to the customers so they can here us ordering.

Although I got a bad sandwich the manager was very professional and fixed my order. Was a tall guy with dreadlocks but I didn't get his name. Very good customer service skills

Good value mean. Wish they offered sauces with their combos. Chicken sandwich was okay but the wrap was good.

Good old country food. Chopped bbq, Yamaha, coleslaw, pulled pork, southern fried chicken, catfish, huge biscuits and hush puppies and so much more. Casual atmosphere with good eating.

Service could've been better, I'm all for having fun at work. There's just a line between having fun with co workers & being attentive to the customer & just completely not listening and ignoring. Please manage staff better and not have them tossing BBQ sauce at one another when it's for us to use.

The staff's very polite and courteous despite how busy they were. Recommend: Burger (any choice) & Cajun Fries.

Unlike most fast food, CookOut (on Miami Blvd) has never gotten my order wrong, and we're usually feeding 5-6 people. Also, their fruit shakes (peach, watermelon, berry) hit the spot on hot summer days.

This place is always busy and there's a reason for that...great food and service that youd expect from a Cook Out. If you're new to this location, there is a second lane on the left side of the building.

Good food. They put the scripture on the packaging. It’s ok, tastes like God made it. Not sure how the bbq sandwich is so good. Don’t wanna. Pro tip: wife swears by the grilled chicken. Pro tip: huge tea is a steal.

Well when it comes to drive through I guess you can also say they have a walk up window lol. The service was fantastic to the point where I said surprise me to my sides and what I got was a blessing disguise. Top-notch great people and all I can say is this is a way to go if you're hungry. The only thing I would say they could do better would be a little bit more parking spots for construction workers and or those doing deliveries. But nonetheless 10 out of 10.

Take out is not gourmet cooking but tastes like a backyard cook out and is comfort food at its best. The west coast may have In-N-Out Burger, but Cook Out wins hands down. Cajun chicken sandwhich, onion rings and a cheer wine float made for a perfect afternoon.

Super friendly staff. They are working late and getting order out fast. I know it must be tough with so many customer but this team was handling it well. Nothing but good things to say about this establishment.

These guys and gals at this Cookout work very well under pressure. Lines get long on both sides and move fluently still. I know customers can be impatient but the staff does not allow that to affect their performance do deliver amazing service.
